|Oz is still involved with the magazine to some degree, but for the most part he's stepped back and let Gork, Andy, Lew, Steve, and Windy take care of what he used to do. Nowadays, Oz can be found scaling cliffs, driving his van through snowy mountains, blistering deserts, and over rainy roads in search of the perfect photo. You see, his first love is fine art black and white photography (as in scenic postcard-type), so that's what he's been doing for the past year and a half ... taking vacations and driving up and down the west coast to remote locations. And he claims that getting all wet, muddy, dehydrated, and pooped out on these photo sessions is the most fun he's had since he started BMX Action.|
